    Default Needing hands on TIG help in North Dallas

    I am builiding a custom logo/sign for a friend in Florida. The base later is 18ga brushed stainless. I am wanting to TIG round base mild steel weld nuts to it to attach letters. I have SS filler and an Econotig. I understand the weld won't exactly be perfect as the metals are dissimilar. I did one sign and lets just say my TIG skills could use some help. ( first time using the machine since I got it 2 years ago) I had 2 friends, both experienced in TIG offer to help me and then bail. I am in the North Dallas area. Looking for someone with TIG skills willing to help me out either at my shop or I can bring the pieces by, preferably in the evening as it is hard for me to break away during the day. I am hoping to barter/trade for this help, the laser cutting blew my budget due to my mistake. Anyone willing to help a fool, please email me at snpequipment @ gmail dot com

    thanks

    why did you use 18ga pvssy metal? JK

    use JB weld or tac it with your mig if you are just using the weld nuts as threaded spacers. start the weld on the nut and let gravity drop the puddle and just kiss the SS 18ga. come back to Phx dik head!

    I ended up just teaching myself to TIG, not the prettiest of welds but not terrible ad they are basically hidden and mounted high so it will be OK. 18ga was all the budget allowed.

    I need to get back for a visit
